The versatility of the Buff makes it a must-have for any outdoor kit. And through February 25, they’re 40 percent off.
If you haven’t added a Buff to your kit, now’s the time. The headwear itself is already affordable — the classic Buff is $20 — but the sale covers a ton of designs, types of headwear, and usage scenarios.
Here are a few on our list of technical problem-solvers within this 40-percent-off grab bag.
Original Reflective Buff: $15 ($10 Off)
This pink Buff with a reflective pattern is a piece that can multitask for hikers, backpackers, runners, cyclists, and more. It’s for basically anyone who might find themselves needing to add some visibility to their kit.
UV Insect Shield Buff: $17 ($12 Off)
An increased amount of UV protection (95 percent when covered) with an additional insect shielding technology puts this Buff into an ideal category for angling, long-distance hiking, watersports, and travel. Buffs have become ubiquitous in the fly fishing world, and for good reason: The reflection off the water after a day of fishing is brutal. For under $20, this is my favorite buy of the group.
Polar Buff: $19 ($13 Off)
The Polar Buff meets the crossover of cold and comfort. A mix of polar fleece and the classic Buff material, this will keep you warm when needed and offer protection that can adjust to various conditions. Wear it in conjunction with your ski helmet, while snowshoeing, or while sledding with the kiddos.
Windproof Bandana: $27 ($18 Off)
If you’ve ever spent a day on the mountain only to come off with windburned cheeks and chapped lips, this is the piece of equipment to suit you. The more technical design allows actual breathability, and the windproofing material protects your cheeks and lips. For cold, blustery powder days, this is your pick.
